Nigerian winger Moses Simon named Nantes Player of the Season

Moses Simon - Nantes

French Ligue 1 side Nantes has named Nigerian winger Moses Simon as their best player for the 2019-20 season.

The Super Eagles star, who joined Christian Gourcuff’s team on a season-long loan from La Liga outfit Levante last summer, polled 40% of the of the total 3,500 votes by the fans of the club to win the prestigious recognition.

Nantes announced on their website: β€œWith nine goals and eight assists in 30 games played, all competitions combined, Moses Simon left a lasting impression. He is voted “Canary of the 2019-2020 season by Iliane” by you, supporters of the Yellow and Green.”

Simon was Nantes’ top scorer with nine goals across all competitions, including five Ligue 1 goals and he registered eight assists – the highest in the team.

The French club have since triggered the option to buy him permanently after his successful loan spell from La Liga side UD Levante. Β 

The Pacy winger signed for Levante from Belgian giants Gent on a five-year contract in August 2018, scoring just a goal in 19 games.

Paris Saint-Germain were declared Ligue 1 champions after French Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, disclosed that no sporting events will be held in the country until September at the earliest, thereby cancelling the remainder of the Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 season, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
